2018 State of the Union Speech … President Trump States African American Unemployment Stands at the Lowest Rate Ever Recorded and Black Caucus Disgracefully Sits (VIDEO)

JUST HOW SCARED OF PRESIDENT TRUMP ARE BLACK POLITICIANS AND DEMOCRATS … HE IS PUTTING BLACK AMERICA BACK TO WORK AGAIN.

President Donald Trump is helping Make America Great Again for everyone. Trump’s economic visions does not discriminate. However, sadly the race-baitors in Washington, DC who would rather see their constituents continue to struggle, rather than Trump’s plan work. Fortunately that is not the case and Democrats look very petty and small.

Last night during President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address, he provided a list of amazing economic accomplishments from his first year in Office, none more remarkable that black unemployment being at an all-time recorded low. President Trump stated, “And something I am very proud of, African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded.”

The reaction from the Democrat black caucus, crickets. Not one individual stood, of those that actually attended the SOTU. One individual, just one actually bothered to clap. UNBELIEVABLE. They could have cared less. This is leadership? Do you think this would have been the reaction to Barack Obama or Bill Clinton? Of course not.  As stated at PJ Media, “Indeed, black unemployment reached a record low under President Trump. The fact that these black congressional leaders hold their hatred for Trump more precious than their celebration of success for their own community is telling.” These people are petrified that Trump is making inroads into the black community by taking them off the dependency of government welfare and providing them well-paying jobs. In the 2016 Trump received 8% of the black vote after being called a racist and white supremacist. That was dramatically up from 2012 and 2008. Look for the Democrats, LEFT’s, media’s and Congressional black caucuses worst nightmare to come true in 2020 … Trump will get double digits of black vote and break that Democrat wall too.

DOW JONES Reaches Record High Over 25,000!!!

25,000 AND COUNTING …

Yesterday, the Dow Jones industrial average broke above 25,000 for the first time, tying the fastest 1,000-point move in its history. In the wake of strong jobs reports, the GOP Tax cut passage, strong consumer confidence and a low unemployment rate, the DOW surged 25,000. The nay sayers in the liberal media claimed Trump was going to be terrible for the economy and the stock markets. Guess who was wrong again?

The Dow Jones industrial average broke above 25,000 for the first time on Thursday, tying the fastest 1,000-point move in its history, following the release of stronger-than-expected jobs data.

“The Dow hitting 25,000 was a pretty wild idea even a year ago. And while its symbolically important, the real story is never just a number. It’s the underlying strength that is pushing markets this high,” said Steve Claussen, vice president of trader strategy at ETRADE.

UPDATE I: And its up again today another 86 at this moment.

Obama Economic Recovery: Commerce Department Revises Down 2014 First Qtr. GDP to -1.0%

And you thought 0.1% GDP was bad …

On Thursday the Commerce Department adjusted down the first quarter GDP, Gross domestic product, to – 1.0% for the first three months of 2014. The agency had initially last month estimated GDP grew at a 0.1% rate in the first quarter. Oops, missed it by that much. How’s that Obamanomics working out for you America?  A recession is defined as a period of temporary economic decline during which trade and industrial activity are reduced, generally identified by a fall in GDP in two successive quarters. However, because job wages have remained stagnant, if you have one, while food prices are up, gas prices are up and energy prices are up, most Americans feel that we are still in a recession.

The recovery that wasn’t. Of course the Obama folks are quick to point to the harsh winter weather for the downturn. Hmm, what happened to global warming? But what happened in the first quarter of 2014 … how about Obamacare enrollment?

GDP_Q1_2014

The United States GDP shrank at an annual rate of 1.0 percent in the first quarter of 2014, according to the second estimate released by the Commerce Department. It is the worst performance in three years and comes lower than a preliminary estimated 0.1 percent expansion, due to a sharper fall in private inventory investment and a bigger trade deficit.

The downturn in the percent change in real GDP primarily reflected a downturn in exports, a larger decrease in private inventory investment, and downturns in nonresidential fixed investment and in state and local government spending that were partly offset by an upturn in federal government spending.

The price index for gross domestic purchases, which measures prices paid by U.S. residents, increased 1.3 percent in the first quarter, 0.1 percentage point less than in the advance estimate; this index increased 1.5 percent in the fourth quarter. Excluding food and energy prices, the price index for gross domestic purchases increased 1.3 percent in the first quarter, compared with an increase of 1.8 percent in the fourth.

CNN Poll: What Obama Job Revovery … Only 24% Believe That an Economic Recovery is Under Way

Remember when President Barack Obama spoke of the job recovery that was under way … Neither do most Americans!

During Barack Obama first State of the Union Address in 2009 he stated the following: “It’s an agenda that begins with jobs. As soon… As soon as I took office.” Instead he focused 100% on passing Obamacare against the will of the people.

According to the most recent CNN poll, not only is Barack Obama struggling with low job approval numbers and trust issues on Onamacare, with regards to the #1 issue facing Americas today, the economy, 59% things are going badly, only a mere 24% believe the economic recovery is under way. Exactly how long has Obama been making that promise? And instead of making jobs the number one issue, he goes out of his way to destroy jobs with over-regulation and  his healthcare and energy agenda. Obamacare has caused business to fire individuals or reduce the jobs from full-time to part-time. An his energy policies are doing their best to destroy the coal industry in the United States.

Obama_Failure

Americans views on the state of the nation are turning increasingly sour, according to a new national poll.

And a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday also indicates that less than a quarter of the public says that economic conditions are improving, while nearly four in ten say the nation’s economy is getting worse.

Forty-one percent of those questioned in the poll say things are going well in the country today, down nine percentage points from April, and the lowest that number has been in CNN polling since February 2012.Fifty-nine percent say things are going badly, up nine points from April.

Besides an obvious partisan divide, which contributes to a urban-rural gap, the survey also indicates a difference of opinion between younger and older Americans.

So its not just Obamacare that Americans are dissatisfied with Barack Obama. It is coming from all directions and at some point it will reach the point of no return, if it already hasn’t.

The 2012 State of the Union:

Yea, imagine if we actually did what Obama promised and did oil exploration in the US and made dependency on Middle East oil a thing of the past. Imagine if we regulated less and allowed the American industrial machine to take off. Imagine if we allowed for increases in nuclear, clean coal, oil, natural gas and the dreaded fracking

Imagine what we could accomplish if we followed their example. Think about the America within our reach: A country that leads the world in educating its people. An America that attracts a new generation of high-tech manufacturing and high-paying jobs. A future where we’re in control of our own energy, and our security and prosperity aren’t so tied to unstable parts of the world. An economy built to last, where hard work pays off, and responsibility is rewarded.

2011 State of the Union:

The very small business jobs that Obama is touting are the very one’s that Obamacare is destroying.

But we have never measured progress by these yardsticks alone. We measure progress by the success of our people. By the jobs they can find and the quality of life those jobs offer. By the prospects of a small business owner who dreams of turning a good idea into a thriving enterprise. By the opportunities for a better life that we pass on to our children.

2010 State of the Union:

This recession has also compounded the burdens that America’s families have been dealing with for decades – the burden of working harder and longer for less; of being unable to save enough to retire or help kids with college. [Save enough? How are Americans supposed to save with the increase in energy costs, the price at the pump and high premium costs of Obamacare? Let along college ids can't get jobs.]

The plan that has made all of this possible, from the tax cuts to the jobs, is the Recovery Act. That’s right – the Recovery Act, also known as the Stimulus Bill. Economists on the left and the right say that this bill has helped saved jobs and avert disaster. But you don’t have to take their word for it. [Yea, how did that "Hopey-Changey" stimulus waste of tax payers money work out for you America?]

That is why jobs must be our number one focus in 2010, and that is why I am calling for a new jobs bill tonight.[What was his #1 focus, jobs or Obamacare?]

2009 State of the Union:

You don’t need to hear another list of statistics to know that our economy is in crisis, because you live it every day. It’s the worry you wake up with and the source of sleepless nights. It’s the job you thought you’d retire from but now have lost, the business you built your dreams upon that’s now hanging by a thread, the college acceptance letter your child had to put back in the envelope.

The impact of this recession is real, and it is everywhere. [Hmm, doesn't it sound like Barack is talking about the affects of Obamacare on families and businesses?]

This is Hardly a Surprise … Red States’ Income Growing Faster than Blue States’

The choice is yours America, do you want your economic growth to be like a “Red” or “Blue” state?

Let this be a reminder to those in 2012 swing state/battle ground states, Independents and open-minded and concerned Democrats, as reported in USA Toady, Red state’ incomes are growing faster than that of Blue states’. What is most interesting is that when averaged nationally, the robust gains in red states and meager gains in blue states produced a national growth rate remarkably similar to that in the swing states. This is what would be called a trend America. there is a reason why Red states are doing better than the big government, union controlled, high tax blue states. As also stated at The Blaze, “Gee, maybe there’s something to be said about this ‘limited government’ & ‘free market’ stuff, huh?” A note to those in swing states in 2012 … what would you want your state ti be in the next four years, like a red state or blue? The choice is yours in November 2012.

The income of those living in red states has climbed 4.6% since the recession began in December 2007, a USA TODAY analysis of total increases found. The average income of those living in blue states and swing states saw a much slower increase. The personal income of blue states has increased 0.5%, while in the swing states, income increased 1.4%.

Contrary to Obama’s comments, it looks like there is a difference between a Red state America and a Blue state America. Even though a President is supposed to be President of all America, it is obvious what works economically and it ain’t big government, Nanny states.

 

Income is growing much faster in Republican-leaning “red states” than in Democratic-tilting “blue states” or the pivotal swing states that will decide the 2012 presidential election, a USA TODAY analysis finds.

Personal income in 23 red states has risen 4.6% since the recession began in December 2007, after adjusting for inflation. Income is up just 0.5% in 15 blue states and Washington, D.C., during that time. In the dozen swing states identified by USA TODAY that could vote either way Nov. 6, income has inched ahead 1.4% in 4 ½ years.

Key swing state findings:

•Declines. Four of the 10 slowest growing are swing states: New Hampshire, Michigan, Florida and Nevada. The Silver State’s income plunge is in a class of its own, down 10.8% because of its real estate collapse.

•Gains. Eight of the top 10 states in income growth lean Republican.

What more does it take for Americans to realize what direction America needs to go in 2012? How much data, how many obvious signs and indicators do Independents and open minded Americans who are concerned with the future of the United States need to rescue our country?
